We're going to be up to our NECKS in VG Lightnings before long!  :o

We will if I have anything to do with it lol
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Hi Colin,

Can you put aside a VG Lightning, High Planes AEW Avenger conversion, 1000lbs post war bombs and the updated decals for the Swift please.

See you there.

Now there's an idea.  :thumbsup:

With two or more folds, like a concertina maybe?  ;D :lol:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

Well they say the design of the U2 started with the Starfighter...

Maybe it could have wings that fold up like an old-fashioned carpenter's ruler?  ;D

Hooo boy oh boy, I might have to spring for one of those Lightning sets. What great news!
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

Hi Colin,

Can you put aside a VG Lightning and the updated decals for the Swift for me please.

Is there a rough estimate of cost ....or is that a taboo question?
Probably spent more time than is healthy painting a Bear's bottom!

Here is a picture of the VG masters (underside showing re-positioned wheel wells), off to the caster now!



Thanks,

Is that Mr. Lucas' handywork Colin? It looks great.  :thumbsup:

How long before one of us on here makes one with the outer wings hinged?  ;D

VG Lightning set for me please Colin, plus a Swift belly tank.

As a proud owner of a Swift F7 conversion, are the roundels/serials in that set also slightly undersized?  Mine's in the loft and I don't recall what markings (other than serials and the white stripes for the Cranfield option) feature.

And what's the diameter of the Dakota wheels, please?  A long story but they may feature in a restoration of a FROG Shackleton MR3 (not the Shack itself but a model that needs to return Shack wheels).

Throws up possibilities for other swept wing conversions anything from the F-84 up to the F-117.
Even a forward swept wing-swing!

Yes Paul did them, we opted to model in the forward position, as when swept back it just looks like, well a normal Lightning!
